  1. It is pretty Mike. A sweet and simple bit of nouveau style.
  2. It's nice isn't it Judy? I wouldn't afford an original Macintosh piece but this is good! Thanks!
  3. Thanks, Phil. I appreciate your input of good taste!
  4. Thanks, Caper! It's a great colour and I like the tree too!
  5. Thanks, Judy. I have noticed that most of the brooches for sale in Japan that are sold as Japanese, are just marked sterling. Perhaps this one was made for export.
  6. Thanks, Valentino. Composite, that's the word I was after!
  7. That's cool. Looks a bit South East Asian made to me but if you don't think so I will go with you Jean. I'm still learning about jewellery!
  8. I loved the brooch when I saw it and I think the bracelet wonderful too. These are so pretty and wearable!
  9. Wonderful trunk Scott. Is that interior lining linen?
  10. There seems little design change in these from the 1880s until 1959. Why change a great look! They are all wonderful.
  11. Just awesome!
  12. I can imagine the bell sounds great. Are these marked India?
  13. It's a wonderful caddy. Jensen maybe this Facebook group could help? https://www.facebook.com/groups/185857384957780/?ref=group_browse_new
  14. Blondie was a great band!
  15. Love. The Tortolani is different and gorgeous!
  16. That's a bad surprise, Ivonne! Still,a nice reminder of your holiday and penguins are pretty cute!
  17. That's great! As far as I know slag is one of the additives used to make glass opaque, so I guess it could be called slag glass.
  18. It does have a look of the Vizner piece. I wonder if they influenced each other, or as both were incredible designers, maybe they got to the same style independently!
  19. Sweetheart of a vase!
  20. I agree Blade but I still thank you!
  21. He has a wicked look in his eye - probably sired a few!
  22. Should help what ails with that much alcohol!
  23. So cool.
  24. I often wonder that too for things from China. Surely the contract between nations specifying mail cost sharing would eat up any profit!
  25. I love operculum too and Judy this is so good in that wonderful mount. I hope if you wear it heaps, everywhere, it gets some patina back!
  26. Beautiful.
  27. Just wonderful. Another amazing micro mosaic. Congratulations on a great addition to your collection Marga.
  28. Nice brooches! And happy birthday! The book sounds good too.
  29. Kitsch goes high class! I don't know Murano at all well as you may know, but it has a Salviati look to me. Someone good did it. It's gorgeous!
  30. Thanks sweetie Sean xx
  31. Hope you enjoyed it Olebodie!
  32. I love op shopping but don't often find the "good" stuff so this was a big buy for me! Thanks Finder. Radio - you know, all modern and cool like.
  33. Umm - coffee AM, cocktail PM . Thanks!!
  34. Thanks Finder!
  35. Ken I did that just to fool people...nah, an accident of photography! Thanks :)
  36. Thanks Scott....always happy to have your appreciation.
  37. I have a couple of pressed glass plates from Japan that I thought might have been a ringless pressing Peggy. Most of them have the design on the front so I have never been sure. I imagine this platte...
  38. I didn't even make that association Judy. Maybe I will use this as my brooch drop plate for a while and make sure my peacock brooch is there.
  39. Thanks Mike. I love a peacock or two also. They did well without colour in showing him off.
  40. The Japanese Ceramic Collectors group on FB may be able to help further.
  41. Thanks Miss Inky. I just need some pretty flowers for it now - on the list to buy tomorrow.
  42. Thanks Thomas! Hope all is well.
  43. It's beautiful, as are your other pieces.
  44. I agree - DDG chawan!!
  45. So Czech! Confetti heaven :)
  46. OK. I'll go with Scandinavian, although may be German such as Ingrid Glas.
  47. It looks like it has a bird bath base which makes me think Czech. Best wait for other ideas!
  48. Pity it doesn't fit well Mike, it's a great ring and could be worn well by a man. My op shops NEVER have any silver or gold. I think they all now put it aside after donation and sell it elsewhere. ...
  49. That livery says to me this was for the Australian run, and it was possibly designed by Ken Done. Just guessing though. Great model!
  50. I'm very impressed!
